Weeks after filing for divorce from NFL star Chad Johnson, better known as Chad Ochocinco, Evelyn Lozada is scheduled to appear on a new Oprah Winfrey Network series titled “Iyanla: Fix My Life.”

Lozada, a reality TV star who accused her soon to be ex-husband of domestic violence, will appear with life coach Iyanla Vanzant in hopes of solving some of her deepest struggles.

Earlier this summer, Vanzant traveled to Miami to meet Lozada and her husband. According to reports, Ochocinco declined to participate in the show. His wife, however, opened up about anger, resentments, insecurities and problems in the marriage.

In a new preview clip that aired Sunday during “Lifeclass,” viewers saw Lozada visibly upset over the change of events in her life. When Vanzant asks Lozada in a follow up interview what scares her most, the “Basketball Wives” star responds, “Not being loved.”

Vanzant also questions Lozada about life with a superstar husband, four new children, cameras following the family’s every move and the accusations of domestic violence. “How did you get to stiches in your forehead, living in a hotel?” Vanzant asks.

The premiere of “Iyanla: Fix My Life” premieres Saturday, September 15 on OWN. Watch a preview for the upcoming series featuring an episode with Lozada below.
